      Featuring at SLAMicide on Monday, April 2, 2007: Aaron Trumm!!!
      Meet Aaron

      Aaron Trumm has been bleeding on microphones, studios, and live audiences since 1989. He has bled out a number 10 ranking in the world as a slam poet, 2 Houston poetry slam championships, 5 national poetry slam appearances, 2 alternative hip-hop CDs under the name "M.C. Murph", the techno/classical/poetry fusion act Third Option, which was called "wicked, totally compelling" by BBC Radio I's Annie Nightingale, publications ranging the spectrum of music and technology from Linux Journal to the National Poetry Slam anthology, a master's degree from Stanford (Music, Science and Technology), and a nation full of stages left burnt, bloody and alive.


      So Last Week...
      @ DC Slam 

      DC Slam is on an indefinite hiatus...in the meantime, visit www.slamicide.com, our sister slam, to find out more about upcoming features  and to find out who will make the 2007 DC/Baltimore Slam Team!!

      In Baltimore @ SLAMicide . . .
      WARNING! This is the Slamicide update. Give us your women and no one gets hurt.

      Haha, okay, not really.

      On the open mic we had Lauren, Jess with an A-MAZING poem, Dario, Rich Boucher and the return of the crazy and wonderful Alex Colvin. Yay!

      Then April Ardito treated us to lovely set of poems about life, love, relationships and the lovely biological parts of men that women don't (typically, if genetics works the way they should). She was funny, goofy, confident, beautiful and true. It was a lovely feature and the audience loved it. And April loves us enough she's planning on moving to Baltimore in the fall! Yay!

      Then we had the one and only Duet Slam! Hosted by me! Eight poets signed up a month before, wrote a duet together and performed it for prestige and prizes. And holy-mother-loving-christ it was awesome!!!

      Mike Turpin and Steve Kirk made up the Barely-Out-Of-High-School Contingent
      Chris August and Chris Wilson formed the Audience-Confusion-Twins
      Hannah and Matt McDonald represented the Married-Couple-With-Tax-Benefits Duo
      Joanna Hoffman and Karen Finneyfrock became the Estrogen-Power-Of-Everyone's-Doom

      In the first round they did the duets, in the second round each poet performed solo.

      Our top three were (out of a possible total of 90 points):
      3. Hannah and Matt McDonald with "ISSUES", burning chicks, and common names (76.2)
      2. Mike Turpin and Steve Kirk with ignorance, hypocrisy, and fish in the sea (76.8)
      1. Joanna Hoffman and Karen Finneyfrock with masturbation, woman power, anti-love, and Cuntistan ( 78.3)

      Next week is Aaron Trumm from Texas! Yay!
